Duwe plays big role for UAA

Soldotna High School and Kenai River Brown Bears product Brad Duwe had the game-winning goals Friday and Saturday as the University of Alaska Anchorage defeated the University of Alaska Fairbanks in the first round of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs.

All three games of the series were played at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks.

On Friday, UAA kept its season alive with a 2-1 win over Fairbanks.

The game was tied at 1 early in the second period when Duwe tapped home a rebound from a Tatchell shot for the game-winner. The goal came 4:27 into the second period.
